Rain threat adds element of unknown to NZ’s semi-final bid

New Zealand’s final World Cup group stage match against Sri Lanka in Chennai on Thursday is facing uncertainty due to a forecast for rain, according to captain Kane Williamson. Despite currently holding the last semi-final slot, New Zealand is tied on eight points with Pakistan and Afghanistan, with net run rate being the deciding factor. Williamson acknowledged the unpredictable weather conditions and emphasized the team’s focus on their own cricket. New Zealand had a strong start in India, winning their first four matches before losing the next four. Williamson highlighted the team’s overall performance and the challenges they faced from different opponents. Reflecting on their previous experience in the 2019 World Cup, where they also struggled initially but made it to the final, Williamson emphasized the importance of staying focused on the present game and adjusting to the conditions. The return of pacer Lockie Ferguson, who missed two matches due to injury, will depend on the pitch conditions.
